Location:ย Paso Robles, CA

My eyeโ€™s just about doubled in size ๐Ÿ‘€ when I spotted this NEW bottle from one of my favorite cider houses, Reef Points. Iโ€™ve loved every bottle these guys put out! (and they put out ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’ฏ )ย 

Iโ€™ve said it before but ciders are really making a splash these days with all the emerging craft companies and their dedication to making dry, refreshing ciders (completely opposite of those Safeway sweet ones). SO itโ€™s time for you to get on board! Change up the game and bring this hard cider to your next fall party ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ, sunny Sunday picnic๐ŸŒค๐Ÿฝ, or just enjoy at home by the fire.ย ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ 

TASTE TEST: Pours a very light golden yellow, small head, great carbonation quality. Super light. Almost tasted like wine on the first sip (you know those sort of apply tasting wines?). Smells like apples (go figure ๐Ÿ˜). Really not much other than apples haha. Granny smith and red apples, that is.๐Ÿ ๐ŸŽ ย Extremely dry and refreshing – not sweet at all, in fact even a little bitter bite.ย ๐Ÿ‘…๐Ÿบ ๐Ÿป

Visions of bright sunshine pop into my headโ€ฆ beaming through skinny trees branches, reflecting off the apples, super crispy air with a just slight bite of coldโ€ฆ yes not kidding, 100% the image that fills my brain when I take a sip and close my eyes.ย ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿƒ ๐Ÿ‚

Just a f*cking delicious cider! Hey guess what Reef Points?!? YA NAILED IT –ย not much else to say.ย ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ™‹โค๏ธ๐Ÿบ๐ŸŽ Well… besides, Happy Sippin’ Sunday!ย ๐Ÿ˜‹
